Hercules & Love Affair on tour
Hercules & Love Affair is Andrew Butler, Kim Ann-Foxman, Sean Wright, Mark Pistel & Aerea Negrot
Hercules & Love Affair are back this summer for a European tour with a fresh sound and three new members. Promising to keep people dancing on into the night, founding-members, Andrew Butler and Kim Ann- Foxman, bring along Berlin-based Aerea Negrot, Chicago's Sean Wright & Mark Pistel, to showcase brand new material.
The latest additions were brought into the band having met Andy on various tours. Aerea Negrot, whose two major influences are Techno and Opera, wooed Andy with a voice resembling Eartha Kitt, which led to him traipsing the streets of the German capital to find her again. Sean was plucked out of a crowd at a Hercules show and brings an equally different dimension to the setup with Jeffrey Osborne-esque vocals.Mark Pistel, who has worked with the likes of Grace Jones and Meat Beat Manifesto and was Introduced to Andy in San Francisco is the third addition.
After the first tour, which included a nine-strong team, Hercules is back with a more streamlined approach to create a live experience, the aim to curate a performance that feels like your favorite 12-inch.
Having initially revived the spirit of real disco and house in 2008 with enough passion and finesse to ignite both the underground and the pop world, Andy and the band are back for more.
‘If there was one thing we would want the record do, it would be to keep people dancing,dancing, dancing,' Andy says.
